Internal Networking Skills Training
It can sound difficult to be good at networking. Networking means meeting people, forging relationships with them, and doing business with them, and for many people these days, their inability or refusal to socialise means difficult in making work relationships. For an efficient businesses and companies to exist they need to run on teamwork, and that means you need to talk to people, and a lot of them. Social skills are needed if you want to be a good team player, and that is required skill needed for anyone who wants to succeed. This training course is therefore set to train your team members to acquire networking skills.
Networking is critical to the success of any business. Anyone worth their weight in business knows that it is a “contact sport;” it’s about your contacts, who you know, and how well your relationship with them stands. The businessperson with a higher level of quality in his or her network tends to have a proportionate level of success. These methods will help your workers be genuine, set goals, and target strategically to make them real. This training course is essential in crafting employees capable of socialising with others and building a genuine team working towards common goals. This pairs well with sessions about communication, teamwork, and strategy. If you wish to know about our other training courses and services, please contact us. We’re helping teams and companies become their very best selves, and your team could be next.
Keep it Real
The primary technique when it comes to building up a network is obviously to start talking to people, and persuading them to do business with you. A lot of people can do this mechanically well: they have their routine memorised, their keywords and pitches cleaned up, and their game face on. However, the problem with this is some who attempt to network have this “working” mind-set; they think that networking is work, so they see the relationships they’re forging as purely for business, and not authentic relationships that they actually care about. Most people can sniff out that inauthenticity, and will, in all likelihood, refuse to network with that person. To avoid this, focus on being positive and building genuine relationships. If you are fortunate enough for your target to accept your networking pitch, maintain your relationship with them as if they were actual friends, and not just business partners. For example, Jorge is a fake person who networks to schmooze a target into his network, but after he gets what he wants or needs, he doesn’t bother to maintain the relationship with that target. In short, don’t be a user; be genuine, and good words will spread about you and your business deals, bringing cumulative success.
Part of networking is about knowing what you want. It’s one of the first things your target will wonder when you start talking to them: what does this person want? It simply won’t do for you to network and not have a goal, motive, or end to be working towards. It’s the reason you were supposed to start networking in the first place: to reach a goal that you set for yourself. It should be mentioned that you don’t want to network with a shotgun approach. Don’t make relationships you aren’t sure you’ll be able to maintain with an equal quality to your highest-level partners. It sounds cold, but a network is only as good as the quality of the relationships in it. It can seriously hurt your business reputation if you network with someone relatively mid-tier in business, then dump him or her and never maintain a relationship with him or her after you get hooked up with a high-tier person. Set goals and targets that you want to achieve by talking to or networking with a person, but don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t work out. Failure to reach a certain goal is acceptable; what is never acceptable is that you stop trying to reach that goal. Aim at the highest possible quality person you can network with, but don’t stop trying if they don’t bite your bait. If you shoot for the limits of the universe, but miss, you can still land among the stars.
Map the Path to the Stars
Your goals are set, and you are ready to begin networking. After you’ve written down your goals, identify whom exactly you want to network with to make those goals real. They can be anyone; it could be family, friends, people you only know by reputation, a famed investor, a business colleague. The point is that they will either make your goals real, or accelerate your progress towards them. The point of doing this is to pair your goals with something real that you can do, like socialise with your target. A good technique to this is to invite the persson you want to network with to talk to you about this over a meal. For example, Jake has goals to set up a business by the end of two years. To make this goal reality, he sets goals, like getting capital and investments, getting staff, and getting suppliers, and targets certain people accordingly. He invites them to lunch, and develops a relationship with them as they talk business, leading to a successful, and high quality network. This is a fine way to map a path to success.
